The floating solar PV systems, of 1.5 megawatt (MW) each, are set to help Singapore move towards its ambitious target to install 2 GW of solar capacity by 2030. The dual use floating solar initiative aims to boost Singapore’s solar energy production, reducing carbon emissions by about 1.5 kilotonnes per year, while powering its water system with renewable energy. The project opened in 2021 and features Fimer’s central inverters, which are specifically built for utility-scale applications and are able to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions, including continuous water exposure.

“Floating solar is becoming increasingly popular, with the Asian markets in particular providing the perfect conditions for this exciting trend” said Maren Schmidt, Managing Director Utility Line of Business at Fimer. “We are proud to be part of this landmark project, and it demonstrates Fimer’s capabilities in being able to provide solutions for installations on this scale, with the natural challenges they bring. With an extensive range of solar inverter solutions, Fimer offered the ideal solution that was compact and easy to install, which suited the project requirements perfectly. Commissioning this project during the Covid-19 pandemic also brought its own set of challenges, which were overcome by the expert service team involved.”

This project builds on Fimer’s track record in Singapore, which has seen it install residential, commercial & industrial, Utility Scale as well storage-based solutions across multiple projects.
